At Camp TOV, teens make a difference. They learn about a variety of issues facing our society -- poverty, hunger, environmental protection, care of the elderly and more. With an emphasis on Jewish values and the importance of gemilut chassidim -- acts of loving kindness and tikkun olam -- repairing the world -- teens use their time and energy to volunteer in a fun, engaging and hands-on way.
How Camp TOV works:
- Camp TOV is a day camp “on wheels.” There are multiple bus pick-up locations around Chicagoland (based on registration) where the campers are picked up and dropped off. Each day brings a new hands-on volunteering project for them to participate in with campers earning about 20 volunteer hours in just one week!
See a sample itinerary! There are two, one-week sessions with each offering the same programming, so you can choose which dates work best for you!
- The program cost includes transportation, two daily kosher (CRC certified) snacks, one lunch, one dinner during the evening program, two Camp TOV t-shirts, and all programming and curriculum. $18 of the program cost will be donated to JUF’s Annual Campaign.
- Campers will also have the chance to take part in an evening program during the week of Camp TOV where they will get to serve dinner at a community kitchen. This direct connection with people in need is always a highlight of the program!
